Fidgets for focus aren't a new thing, although you've likely seen this "trend" explode with the advent of items like the fidget spinner. Whether you're nervous in meetings, anxious about upcoming deadlines or desperately seeking a creative brainchild, you've likely sought sensory refuge or stimulation at some point. Turning on white noise to drown out the neighbors, sitting at a coffee house inspired by the gentle murmurs of fellow coffee connoisseurs, biting nails, tapping feet, popping gum or clicking a pen are all types of sensory fidgets.
While most of the evidence is still largely anecdotal, more and more preliminary studies are finding a correlation between improved classroom (or office) function and sensory input. Children with ADHD seem to benefit tremendously from being allowed to perform an activity with one hand while engaged in writing or math with the other.
We carry a wide range of focus fidgets for kids and adults including putty, balls, stress pucks, chew buds and squishy gel lap pads. In addition, you'll also find everything you need to keep your child, teen and everything in between calm and free of too much outside stimulation. With headphones, sensory sacks, weighted lap toys and compression vests, you'll have the proper tools to keep children who gravitate toward or shy away from seeking additional input on task at home, in the classroom or during therapy sessions.
